Unfortunately recordings of the earlier part of the show are pretty muddled but starting here this is fantastic. Can anyone shed some light on “Darkness” – I can’t place the melody?

I'm on it, was messin w/ this 72-07-25 and thought I'd browse TDIH and came to this Fillmore and could'nt pass it up. This DS is truly amazing. One of the reveiwers metioned that Pig played his last Little school Girl at this show so I'm on my way to track that down.
The day after Jimi's death,I can only imagine the vibe in the crowd , not to mention what the band was feeling.I can only guess that they had in their mind to play a fantastic show, from what I've heard already that seems to be the case.In the words of Pete Townshend..."Rock is dead they say? WELL LONG LIVE ROCK!...."

Hey V--one of my all time favs, as I guess most everyone here knows...I listen to this DS more than any other.

Enjoy.

That's from Darkness, Darkness by Jesse Colin Young or The Youngbloods. Great tune, but not exactly in the vein of our bands treatments of it.

Thanks Earl – I remember the song now (and that “emptiness”.) Done by Mott The Hoople also, and more recently Robert Plant.

Oh my, what did Pigpen just say…

I'm confused (happens to me alot) somewhere in the reveiws of this sourcehttp://www.archive.org/details/gd70-09-19.sbd.kaplan.5217.sbeok.shnf it was stated that Darkness Jam was a play on "Once There was a Time" by Ten Years After
Was this person mistaken his reveiw semmed to be correcting a previous one where it was mentioned that Darkness came from The Youngbloods w/ a song by the same title as you mentioned.
The source of inspiration for this is of no "great" concern for me just a head scrather.

I should have read the reviews as I would have found my answer there! I suppose the reviewer you point to may have been confused a bit himself.

Had that album “A Space In Time” by Ten Years After many moons ago. Check this out for comparison if you like:
